ruminations about architecture and design

this is the end my friend

Since this blog is frequently repetitive I don't mind bringing up the destiny of the Folk Art Museum again. It can be hard to define context in New York City from a photograph, but this image demonstrates how the scale of the building is inconsistent with its neighbors. If the site were  like Paley Park then MOMA would not be encroaching on it, but after seeing the area in person I'm even more curious as to how the FAM was built in the first place.
